Koni shocks

Good evening, I am about to install new Koni shocks on my 2018 anthem and was wondering if anyone who has installed them could tell me The setting that they found worked best for them. Thank you for any help.

I just installed the koni evos on my Cornerstone. They didnt have any adjustments that I saw. Are you installing Evos?

Yes, I was under the impression that you compress them all the way and then turn the top of the shock to Stephen or soften the ride I may be wrong I’ll keep looking. I hope you’re happy with your new shocks.

Did you notice any difference in ride or handling with the Koni shocks?

The difference in ride in incredible. You will notice a huge difference. No more bouncing down the road.

Please let us know as objectively as possible what you think of the ride difference. Mine can get pretty bouncy at times although that has improved after adjusting the tire pressures to my weights; I was 10 pounds high in front and 5 pounds high in the rear. Haven't had a bottom out since.

We were just at the Spartan training and had them installed. The Spartan techs and other owners that were taking the course recommended them. Our tire pressures after weighing were identical to what we already had set them (with the exception of the tag tires, which went from 95 to 85). The DW and I both noticed a ride difference, but hard to be objective about it.

We only did the fronts. One of the other attendees tows a big trailer behind his Anthem, and he said it was like night-and-day after installation on all corners (he has like a 1000 lb tongue weight or more).

A cheap upgrade to your ride and handling, especially if it's already in the shop for other work.

I put them on my Dutch Star. My problem wasnít porpoising but jarring at bridge joints and other small bumps in the road. The shocks I replaced were stock Zach. New Koni Evos smoothed the harsh ride. Very happy with them.

It had bilstiens on it. The difference in ride and control with the koni's is night and day. No more bouncing when you hit those rollers going 70.

I highly recommend this upgrade
